About Augmentation + Lift
When many women age, they may lose fullness in their breasts while others may begin to notice excess breast skin. Some women will have both problems that lead to sagging, deflated breasts. If you would like to increase breast volume while also eliminating loose skin, aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile can perform a breast augmentation surgery plus a breast lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Basile Plastic Surgery in Naples, FL begins by removing loose skin from the breasts and then placing silicone or saline implants to get to your goal size. Breast surgery with a lift and augmentation addresses multiple concerns, such as size, position, and shape to create younger, perkier-looking breasts. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Basile to go over your unique needs and desires, so he can help you decide if a breast surgery with an augmentation and a lift best fits your goals.
"Breast augmentation was something that I had been thinking about since my third daughter was born 19 years ago. But as a stay at home mom/wife, it just never seemed to be “the right time”. I waited, patiently, until at last the timing was right! I did a lot of research and talked to many people. Dr. Basile was one of three Plastic Surgeons that I met with before making my final decision. From my initial consultation, I knew that I had found my plastic surgeon.Dr. Basile and his entire staff are nothing short of exceptional. First impressions are everything… when I arrived at the office, which by the way, was beautiful, clean and smelled AMAZING, I was greeted by Ashley, the patient care coordinator. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her welcoming smile. She put me in a consultation room where we talked for a bit and then she said Dr. Basile would be right in… and I don’t think I even waited five minutes to see him.The time everyone took with me was amazing, I never once felt rushed. Dr. Basile is a highly skilled surgeon with a good eye. I had done my research and when I went to my appointment I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. He listened as I explained, in detail, what I hoped my end result would be, then he offered his suggestions on what he thought would give me the best results.At my pre-op appointment he thoroughly explained the procedure and technique. Went through all of the medications and recovery, discussed any questions I had, and again, went through all of my “wish photos” that I showed him. From the time I had my consultation until now I called (or emailed) several times, I had a gazillion questions and Ashley was always patient, kind, courteous and professional. She ALWAYS made me feel like there was no silly question and regardless of how busy she was, I felt as if she was my very own personal patient coordinator, like I was their only patient.Finally - SURGERY DAY! I arrived at the surgery center at 6:30am. Feeling nothing more than excited! Dr. Basile came in, drew on my chest with a marker, and asked me again if I had any questions. Enter Operating Room, (ok, NOW maybe I’m feeling nervous) sleepy time, Dr. Basile “working his magic”, wake up, feel fine, go home. Took meds as prescribed. Saw Dr. Basile first thing the next morning.The meds made me sick, (which is typical for me) but as far as pain, I really didn’t have any. I also didn’t have ANY bruising, not at all. I followed Dr.’s orders exactly as they were given to me. I had a “slight” complication, which was absolutely NO FAULT of Dr. Basile or the surgery center, (it was something that would have happened regardless of who my surgeon was) Dr. Basile handled it in a way that eased my mind. He’s not a “wait and see” doctor, when I called to say something was wrong, he had me in his office that day, even though I had just seen him 2 days prior. I saw him every few days for the next 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 months after that. I am now a little over 6 months post up, doing great and have very minimal scars already, and they will still continue to heal. I’m beyond happy with my results.I could go on and on, but the bottom line is Dr. Basile gave me exactly what I asked for. My Experience with Dr. Basile and his staff was exceptional. I highly recommend Basile Plastic Surgery."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Apr 25, 2018

"Dr. Basille and his assistant Marissa have been absolutely fabulous. After researching extensively for a good surgeon for breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, I finally chose Dr. Basille due to his extensive knowledge, his politeness and honesty. I loved his no frills approach and how thorough he was. He listened and went over all my options in detail. The cosmetic industry is overwhelming and choosing a cosmetic surgeon can be daunting and tiresome. So I am hoping by leaving this review and being so exhilarated by my results, I have done the hard work for so many. If you want a meticulous Dr who will make you look amazing look no further."- A.L. / Google / Mar 16, 2023

I’ve been having both for many years and had it done at many places and he is by far the best with placement. I am extremely happy to have found him. He is very kind and makes you feel at ease. I have also seen both Diana for laser hair removal and Alissa for skin care. Between the three you have a an absolute dream team."- E.R. / Google / Nov 28, 2022

There are several reasons why you may be looking into breast surgery combining a lift with augmentation. It's an ideal choice if you want to significantly rejuvenate your breasts while improving the firmness of your breast skin. You may have developed breast ptosis (sagging) caused by natural aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss; therefore, you would like to enhance the volume of your breasts — this can all be achieved with an augmentation and lift. Dr. Basile will be able to determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.
A combination breast surgery is commonly done at an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. The excess skin is eliminated and the soft tissue is smoothed. Dr. Basile will explain the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement. In certain cases, the nipple-areola complex may be moved to match your new breast shape and size.
What to Expect
The recovery timeframe for an augmentation with a lift will be different for every patient; however, you will probably be well enough to get back to your everyday activities in about seven days. You should refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least 2 – 6 weeks. There will also be mild to moderate inflammation after your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will settle into their final position after several months where at that time you will be able to see your results.
